- AY LESSON (By Cale K. Burgess) Leeson for Sunday, August S, 194? 'j This week the topic for our Inter national Sunday School Lesson is "Parents and Their Children." The Golden Text is found in Proverbs 22:6, "Train up a child in the tray he should go; and, when he is old, he will not depart from it" This is a timely topic, because a study of Parents and Children is a study of the Home; and surely it is urgent that we give prayerful thought to the present status of our Homes in America. The present shameful records of our divorce courts bespeak the appalling need for the rehabilitation of our Homes. And we do not believe that amend ments to our marriage and divorce laws will solve this tragic problem. Of course, it would help for us to re vise our marriage laws to prevent hasty marriages; and it would help to revise our divorce laws so that the idea of separation and divorce might be discouraged, delayed and pre vented aa much as possible. However, we do not believe that these .changes in laws would be very effective in preventing discord, unhappiness end failure in our Homes. The integ rity of our Homes cannot he created or preserved by the enactment of 'ill'." 'ill 111 I laws. Tfaen la the only harmony and Homes. And, helpful restored and have a great revival along religious and spiritual lines. Parents discharge their obligations to their children, unless they have the spirit Of Christ in their Uvea. A Home in which Jesus does not abide cannot properly nurture children. The house might be expensive and beautiful and it might be filled tfith all modem gadgets'and conveniences; but, if the Lord dwelieth not therein, it Is a failure aa.-a Home. a y H The important matter for us to) consider is how we can improve the spiritual quality of our Homes, how can we bring Christ into our Homes T As one aid to this end, we suggest Home Dedication. Often times, when we build a new Church or finish pay ing a mortgage on an old Church, we plan a1 special occasion; we call it "Dedication of the Church." And sometimes, when an impressive of fice building baa been erected or an elegant clubhouse has been built or some other unusual structure has been erected for business o? social uses, impressive public ceremonies are had to dedicate this particular structure. And we suggest that we extend this same "idea to include the Dedication of Homes. When a young their Home. Such a help to of bring Christ into the fore the arrival of children. ? - - that might be practiced to help cre ate a spirit of consecration and re verence jn the Home. It would be helpful to practice the ancient cus tom of "saying grace" before each meal. If every family wouhl hesi tate for a mere moment Wore each meal to invoke diyine blessings, this simple ceremony would add greatly to the spirit of reference in the Home and in the lives of all mem bers of the family. And this in creased sense of reverence and con ization would help in the improve ment of the (spiritual atmosphere of the Home and help in bringing Christ into the Home. Daily' scripture reading in the Home would help greatly. The homes that have daily devotionals are so few that many of our families have never heard of the Family Altar. Sometime ago we were speaking in one of the largest churches in one of the cities of our State. During our address, we had urged the Family, Altar as one of the aids for the bringing of a spiritual revival in oui land. After the services/ several persons came to the Altar to express what tar a ha to attend a while in High Point he intended to buy a Family Altar, young business mart in that splendid city, Superintendent at the Suftday School in a large church, one of the leaden in the religious life of his Church, was so ignorant of religious history and so barren in his spiritu al experiences, that he bad never heard of that ancient and glorious h> Altar. stitution, the Family Parents should provide for their children a Home that is as beautiful and comfortable aa they can afford. They should utilize the discoveries of modem science in providing prop er food, recreation, medical care, schooling, and vocational guidance and training for their children. And, more important than any of these material things, parents should pro vide for their children a'Home in which the spirit of the Lord abides ?a Home dedicated to God, a Home in which the Bible is read, "Grace is Ten volumes J?r.">ooks for teem in the United daring: the Civil War have been tamed over by the Archives in Washington to fhe Department of Archives and it uses announced by Christopher Crittenden, director of the depart ment.
